Where do I start... my name's Jack? I'm a 25 year old full-time account and part time social media influencer. Since a very young age I always appreciated fashion and the importance of a balanced lifestyle. After a fair bit of pressure from my ex-housemate I started the Instagram page "itsmejack" as a creative outlet to express myself in a totally different way to your everyday 'accountant'.
I moved to Melbourne in October 2015 for a job at an accounting firm, little did I know, or even understand the power of social media. I made the move for the change in lifestyle, I really wanted to experience the big smoke and the variety of cultures Melbourne has to offer.
If I gave you a dollar for every different coffee store I've been in, you would be a very rich person, haha! From Monday through to Friday my go to is Everyday Midtown on Little Collins. On the weekend, you can't go past Café BÜ.
During the week I'm looking for a quick but strong coffee served with a smile. On the weekend I love being outdoors, Café BÜ is the perfect mix of arty and relaxing. Although it's a bit of a drive, there's no such thing as wasted time if your getting good coffee!

As boring as it sounds I head to the CBD first. Now now, here me out before you start laying the criticism on me. The CBD has the biggest variety of items. You can go from a Burberry trench coat to a basic white tee in a matter of a kilometer or two. Whether you're dressing for a black tie ball or a future festival, the CBD has you covered!
Wow - decisions, decisions. In all seriousness you can't beat the Pandan Whizz-Fizz at Saigon Sally. It's every 90's kids memories in a glass!
You can't go wrong down Chapel! Tokyo Tina is definitely one restaurant I'm loving right now. It's worth the wait... trust me. Whilst you're waiting go for a drink at Boston Sub. Don't be fooled by the cool-room door!
NGV (National Gallery of Victoria) Friday nights, they hold a bunch of events throughout the year. The perfect way to unwind after a long week!
Templetown Barber. Why? Well for one, they don't advertise! And two, you should never undervalue a slick haircut. Now the cats out of the bag, do I need to find a new secret?
